Sargent Seedoo is a square dance caller and dance instructor from Kentucky who currently resides in Hudson, New York. He came into this work honestly and learned the craft from old-timers in Kentucky/West Virginia and young revivalists from all over the country. He may be naïve, but he thinks social dance will save the world.

Here's some poetry from Sargent Seedoo.

“All join hands and circle left!”
a common-heard refrain
echoed on the dance floor when
Sargent Seedoo takes the stage.

He’ll teach y'all all the footwork
The moves and swings he’ll chant
God respects us when we work
but loves us when we dance.
